Audio Distribution Solutions


Rapid improvements to IP network infrastructure have led to broadcasting over the public internet becoming a new paradigm for a growing number of radio engineers. Cost pressures and demands to improve the bottom line have also driven broadcasters away from leased lines, ISDN and satellite IP into terrestrial IP networks for STLs and audio distribution.


Tieline provides a range of IP solutions for distributing mission critical broadcast audio streams over LANs, WANs, the internet, satellite IP, 3G, 4G, Wi-MAX and Wi-Fi. Tieline multipoint IP audio solutions are ideal for:


  • Distributing programming between network affiliates or studios.
  • Sending multiple STL signals to different transmitter sites.
  • Sending program inserts to studios or affiliates.
  • Distributing audio from one site to multiple end points.
  • Sending voice tracks from remote studios, affiliates and other locations.
